Type 2 Fun Run
This is an ultra race like no other. Distance covered and the route taken will vary between each competitor. A combination of mandatory and optional checkpoints will dot the region, each worth points. Racers must return to base with a 30 hours time limit, and the race is won by points collected. Solid navigation and strategy are key. The minimum distance (mandatory checkpoints and no others) is approximately 85k. Last year the lead runners put in ~150k.
The Run is entirely self-supported. Runners will need to carry sufficient equipment to survive in the wild and complete the run safely. There will be mandatory as well as suggested kit that runners must carry at all times. No outside assistance is permitted. There are no feed stations, we won't set up your tent for you, we won't point you in the right direction, and we certainly won't pop your blisters. Only the experienced are encouraged to apply, and only the intrepid will make it.
The map of checkpoints will be released much closer to the date, so close that you won't get a chance to recce your route, but to help you plan your travel, the start/finish base will be in Braemar, in Aberdeenshire.
